Ray Rice has Domestic Violence Charges Dropped

On Thursday a judge dismissed a domestic violence charge against Ray Rice, the former Baltimore Ravens running back. Last year Rice was caught on camera having a physical fight with his fiancee, Janay Palmer. Then there was a second video where he is seen knocking her out with a punch.

When the first video surfaced Rice was suspended for only two games, and then when the second video surfaced he was suspended indefinitely. Rice has been reinstated to the NFL but has not signed with a team just yet. He was able to have the charges dismissed because he completed the terms of a pretrial intervention. Normally, for violent crimes the pretrial intervention is rejected, but Atlantic County Prosecutor, Jim McClain, signed off it. McClain made the decision after speaking with both Rice and Palmer.

This required Rice to go to anger management classes and be on probation for a year. This also allowed him to avoid being charged with third degree aggravated assault. Back in February Rice said that, “This year has gone by really fast. It’s been a year since the incident. Once May comes, I’ll be moving into my new house and I’ll sort of feel like a free man by then. You’re back to a fresh slate.”

According to NBC News, a former head of the FBI, Robert Mueller, was hired by the NFL to look review over the case. In January Mueller concluded that there should have been a more thorough investigation done for this case.
